Map skirt retrolicious

These are the only photos from my trip to the Australian Outback where you won’t see me sweating profusely in crummy, old workout clothes. Haha. Most of my time in Uluru was spent being active, but for this night, I had a special candlelit dinner in the desert to go to (there’ll be a separate post on that), and wearing my map skirt, once again, felt like the perfect occasion. (I love wearing this skirt when I’m actually out traveling and exploring!)

Also, most of the dresses/skirts I currently have planned to feature on the blog are WAY too warm for the 100+ degree temps I had in Uluru! But this map skirt breathes well, and it still looks nice with sandals. (And I wanted at least one outfit post from The Outback!) I was still a bit warm in this outfit, as this top is a bit thicker, but once the sun went down…it was absolutely perfect!

Uluru in the distance.

The view of Uluru (a.k.a. Ayers Rock) you see in the background of my photos was from the Outback Pioneer Hotel and Lodge’s viewing area. (That’s where we stayed for this trip – it was very nice!) We were the only ones at the viewing area at the time, which was also very nice!

My audience, haha.

Ok, I lied, we did have an audience for these photos. I want to call them desert pigeons, but I believe the correct name for these guys, pictured above, is Crested pigeons. They’re a bit more interesting looking than regular old pigeons!

And he mooned me..haha!

They’re apparently not fans of getting their photos taken either, haha. (Or maybe they’re teenage birds? Haha.)

I hope everyone back home in the United States has a wonderful time tomorrow celebrating Thanksgiving with friends and family! I’m still debating what I want to do for it this year…and whether I should celebrate on Thursday or wait until Friday (when it’s technically Thanksgiving in the US), ah we’ll see! Let me know if you have any fun plans this year in the comments! And what’s your favorite outfit to wear on trips?

  1. For whatever reason, this outfit just reminds me of Australia! I love the bright sunny yellow colors and that map skirt, dying over it!! Ok, those pidgens look more like exotic birds than pidgens!! Seriously hash.


    1. Aw, thank you, Amanda! I really love this skirt too. 🙂 And aren’t those pigeons crazy looking? Glad I wasn’t the only who thought so. Haha.

  2. I hope you had a lovely time!! The photos look great! Love that skirt <3


  3. These may be my favorite photos that you’ve ever taken! The lighting is beautiful, the outfit is perfect, and everything just pops together! This skirt is so amazing; I’m in the middle of a move now but this skirt made the most recent carload over to my new place ha! XO

    1. Oh gosh, thank you so much, Lauren! You are far too kind! Haha, glad the skirt made it to your new place! I’m so behind – I didn’t realize you were moving right now! I’ll have to see if I missed any of your latest posts. 😉

  4. WOAH what a backdrop! Stunning! And so perfect for this adorable outfit. I hear ya on being sweaty – when we were in Aruba, I just accepted that my hair would be back in a clip/headscarf most of the time and that my bangs would not be stick straight LOL! The heat is no joke! I can’t wait to hear more about this romantic dinner in the desert! How fun!!

    1. Oh gosh, thank you so much, Sara! I LOVED your photos from Aruba! You looked amazing! But I hear ya, the heat makes for interesting wardrobe and hair issues, haha.

  5. Such a beautiful outfit- I have a hankering for a map skirt, I confess! Works really well with the yellow!
    Those pigeons are weird and so cool! Not seen any like that before!

    1. Aw, thank you, Kezzie! I do highly recommend this map skirt if you’re in the market. 🙂 Haha, and glad I’m not the only one who was impressed by the weird looking pigeons!

  6. You are the cutest Lindsey. Love this map skirt.
    That view though is amazing. Have head so much about Uluru.
    Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

  7. I looove this skirt, dear Lindsey, and wow, so good you were the only ones there, apart from the crested pigeons, of course – desert pigeons sound also very good! I wish you a great Thanksgiving! Enjoy it wherever you are, it is in our heart! So many people told me that “ah, in the UK or Uruguay you don’t celebrate it, why a post about it” and I only can say “it’s in our hearts”. I celebrated it for so many years in the US, and why should I forget it? So, yes, celebrate it with your husband and have fun and gratitude 🙂 Hugs!

    1. Thank you so much, Denise! I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving as well! And I like that – “it is in our heart.” I completely agree! Hugs to you as well! 🙂
